Description

Verbenas make fantastic container and hanging basket plants, flowering steadily for months through the summer and into autumn. This one blooms in the richest purple with a pure white eye – butterflies and bees love it too.

Care Tips

Verbena plants grow best when they get 8 to 10 hours of direct sunlight. If not then they can be prone to developing powdery mildew. Once planted feed them and continue monthly for the rest of the growing season.
